Information : Prioritization of Maintenance Job Requests
Maintaining the facilities and equipment at the Oak Ridge Y-12 Plant is a major task with yearly costs of almost $80 million to maintain over 200 major buildings, 200 minor structures, and all contained equipment. There are approximately 25,000 work order requests in the backlog and 500 received every day. Maintenance is an aspect that is not easily related to normal production goals or accomplishments. The Plant needed a simple, effective means to set priorities.
The Maintenance Importance Generator Program combines elements of federal and state policy, plant policy, physical plant particulars, maintenance personnel data, customer organization expertise, and maintenance expertise to develop a numeric value for each work order and establish priorities. The program also uses risk ranking data in an expert system to accomplish the ranking. Listings of work order requests, organized by priority and location, are provided to maintenance planners and supervisors to guide their work.
